When I first saw this image

advertised for British Paints

in this month’s addition of Inside Out Magazine

all I could do was stare and stare.

I love …

the Colour of the Lining Boards,

the styling …

& the Simplicity.

Wood,  Wool,  Leather and Stone.

Clean Lines provide a sophisticated edge.

Recognising the Romance in the Rough …

it requires a girlie injection

if there’s brick …

it will often be painted white

Accents of pretty colours & accessories

add a homely touch.

Industrial Chic…

Streamlined architecture 

adds a sophisticated edge

White furniture,

 curved lighting and chairs

provide the feminine touch.

Recognising the Romance

in  the raw, rough, reclaimed & worn …

blue colour trend 2013


How stunnng is this room!

The pops of royal blue are a highlight for me

and can you see that this royal blue 

is much warmer than the cooler grey blues of late?

 Colour contrast …

paired with different natural textures

of wood, metal & wool

make for an exciting Design!



Here is another room

accessorisd with blue

but the warmer blues in the first pic have red in them …

they’re new, on trend …

and very, very striking!



Not everyone can afford to change their interior

with each new trend 

so if you love blue …

keep in mind

that these new warmer blues

can be introduced in the way of accessories …

 bottle and flowers …


all pics via pinterest


 or just like in this industrial setting ….

think also cushions, rugs

vases, chairs & lamps.


Warm Blue – on trend 2013

A Contemporary Vintage Home

 Hello friends,

Come inside and enjoy

a contemporary vintage home

so tastefully renovated and styled by josh and jenna

  from ‘the block’.

Don’t you just love the contemporary grey walls

and can you recognise the blue undertones?

Just look at this window seat…

it’s the perfect place to enjoy the sun

and I really love the styling.

Do you notice

 that the vintage bedside tables don’t match?

Now that design has moved away from

stuffy interiors…

they create a relaxed and lived-in atmosphere.

Simple flowers in a vase

also bring a feeling of aliveness to the room.

A walk-in-robe any of us girls would be proud of!

with lots of pigeon holes for shoes

oh joy!

Here is the kitchen

sleek and contemporary

with scandinavian influences.

I love the industrial globe lighting.

 In the dining area

 the star feature is

this 1000mm diameter

umbrella pendant.

It certainly has the wow factor!

Oh, and should I mention it costs ‘a bomb!’

 The Eames chairs

and the all white walls

echo scandinavian design.

Vintage posters keep the room

young and fun.

 Here is the living area…

simple and functional

with a vintage retro edge.

 all photos via ninemsn

The beautiful contemporary greys

continue from inside to outside

for elegance and stylish continuity.

Although josh and jenna’s home

didn’t to sell at auction….

they have decided

to start their own styling/design business

Bicker Design Co.

I wish them every success…

they certainly deserve it.


If you are in the Ballarat Area

and would like to see

Contemporary Greys and Whites

in your home

inspired by josh & jenna’s

renovated home…

please contact me here.
